June photo: lazy walruses


Walruses have a tendency to gather when they are on land. They are going to surround the group and get as close as they can, causing the displeasure of those who are already resting. Sometimes they face each other as if they were going to fight, but most of the time it's just a warning, and they calmly go back without going over.

We found this group in Svalbard, and we approached slowly so as not to disturb them. Maintaining an adequate distance we could observe them (and photograph them) without altering their behavior.
